Death stalks the dreams of several young adults to claim its revenge on the killing of Freddy Kruger. Chased and chastised by this finger-bladed demon, it is the awakening of old memories and the denials of a past of retribution that spurns this hellish vision of a dreamlike state and turns death into a nightmare reality.Written by
As he had on Friday the 13th (2009), producer Michael Bay insisted that the film be shot in Panavision anamorphic. This is the first film in the "Nightmare" franchise to be shot in the format. See more »

Let me start off first by saying that this is much better then the average horror movie we are use to seeing these days. The plot, although already taken from a previous movie still holds the attention of the viewer and creates a nightmare for all to be in. The visuals are absolutely stunning and the suspense is overwhelming. The cast does a pretty good job as well. The kids are alright although no one in particular stood out to me but everything was done in a realistic more modern way. Of course every wants to know about Jackie Earle Haley as Freddy and while he isn't as good as Robert Englund, he does do the character justice and in a way makes it his own. The Dialouge is nothing to brag about but what is amazing is the way in which you can't tell if one of the characters is dreaming or not. You sit in your seat trying to predict the next jump out at you scene but your always wrong. So overall this movie was better then I expected and I don't think Krueger fans will be disappointed in Haley's performance. I'd give this film 7/10 and finish off with two things. This is darker and more serious then the original so don't expect Freddy to make you laugh and the ending was one of my favorite moments because if you love the original then you'll know exactly what I mean.
